Art Pepper with The Sonny Clark Trio

Early, early Art Pepper from 1953. You can see the guy emerging easily here. What a sax player he would become!
I know very little about this date. My cover is a black and white affair in a ridiculous checkerboard format. This rip is taken from a Straight-Ahead Jazz records reissue, date unknown.
The original recording was done in Pepper's stomping ground of Hermosa Beach, CA. and I suspect was nothing more than a pick up date that someone recorded.

recorded May 31. 1953 @ The Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach.
